Psychiatric Hegemony: A Marxist Theory of Mental Illness


By (author): Bruce M. Z. Cohen

This book offers a comprehensive Marxist critique of the business of mental health, demonstrating how the prerogatives of neoliberal capitalism for productive, self-governing citizens have allowed the discourse on mental illness to expand beyond the psychiatric institution into many previously untouched areas of public and private life including the home, school and the workplace. Through historical and contemporary analysis of psy-professional knowledge-claims and practices, Bruce Cohen shows how the extension of psychiatric authority can only be fully comprehended through the systematic theorising of power relations within capitalist society. From schizophrenia and hysteria to Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and Borderline Personality Disorder, from spinning chairs and lobotomies to shock treatment and antidepressants, from the incarceration of working class women in the nineteenth century to the torture of prisoners of the ‘war on terror’ in the twenty-first, Psychiatric Hegemony is an uncompromising account of mental health ideology in neoliberal society.

Risk, Communication & Health Psychology


Features: Used Book in Good Condition
By (author): Dianne Berry

“…this text…will become a reference for years to come.”
Health Expectations

This is the first book to clearly assess the increasingly important area of communication of risk in the health sector. We are moving away from the days when paternalistic doctors managed healthcare without involving patients in decision making. With the current emphasis on patient empowerment and shared decision making, patients want and need reliable, comprehensive and understandable information about their conditions and treatment. In order to make informed decisions, the people concerned must understand the risks and benefits associated with possible treatments. But the challenge for health professionals is how best to communicate this complex medical information to diverse audiences.

The book examines:

  • Risk: defining and explaining how the term is used by different disciplines, how its meanings have changed over time and how the general public understand it
  • Health communication and the effects on health behaviours
  • Effective risk communication to individuals and the wider public
  • Effectiveness of patient information leaflets, and strategies for improving oral and written health communications
  • The cognitive and emotional issues at stake for patients in understanding risk and health information
  • The use of new technologies in risk and health communication
  • Ethical issues, and the future of risk communication

Using examples from disciplines including psychology, sociology, health, medicine, pharmacy, statistics and business and management, this book is key reading for students who need to understand the effect of risk in health psychology as well as for health professionals interested in doctor-patient communication, informed consent and patient welfare.
